no start due to electrical problem

Im going to buy a 89 ef, but the guy says it cranks but won't start. Also he says that the battery gets drained. So is there a shortage?[/u]

Check the ground to the transmission. If she's cranking but not starting then you got a fuel problem it sounds like. Did you prime the fuel pump?

Check for spark, and fuel. The battery draining is due to a draw in the electrical system.

the transmission ground might be the problem cuz he did mention that he put in a new transmission.

That was the reason my car didn't start. I put the tranny ground on and she fired right up

Well im getting it thursday for 300. Ill see about the ground. Hopefully that's the problem

All of the above x2. Sweet deal for $300. Also don't forget to check the main relay.

Found out what the problem was. Its the timing belt. Battery was no good so we s.witched batteries i checked the main relays no shortage everything was good, i guess the reason i knew was it was cranking faster than normal.
